Place is lively, to the point of rowdy, young crowd and old drunks. Expensive side, food is good. Popular under the locals

You have to taste their homemade pies. Excellent to say the least. Very popular and parking can be a problem. Sport events accommodated and very lively. Take your friends there and enjoy a cold one!

The food is pub food and is well prepared and is value for money but its a pub. This is not a smoke free environment amd made it a uncomfortably as nearly everybody was smoking. The pub is noisy and hot.

12 of us went out for dinner on a Thursday evening. The food was delicious and the place was busy. Service was good for a big party. Portions are big and you really get value for money

This isn't a 5 star restaurant or anything close, but it is a brilliant South African pub. The prices are good & the meals are delicious & the helpings are huge. I would recommend a platter or the eisbein. Can get quite busy so make...More

It's a pub, so don't expect gourmet food. That being said the food is very good value for money. It's a fun and vibey evening out, and the staff is friendly and competent.

food was good at a reasonable price. A bit noisy for me and the service not always fast enough. Sometimes very packed
